MUSIC: Various Artists - Disk Musik


Label: DD. Records

This experimental compilation from Japanese record label DD records released in 1985 is mesmerising.  Currently out of stock on discogs and with an average over only 400 listens on YouTube, it is a hugely under appreciated addition to the ambient, noise, and experimental electronic music canon. There have bee many great contributions from Japanese artists over the past 40 years, which has been demonstrated by a resurgence of fruitful reissues - particularly from the mid-80’s.

It is rare to hear a compilation that is so varied in styles and yet excels in many directions.
